I wonder if you have any specific mobility routine/ stretches to relax traps after olympic lifting workouts.
My upper traps are very prone to hypertrophy and whenever i do power cleans they get tight to the level i get headaches for a few days.

I know the feeling! But it actually is likely an inflammation of the levator scapulae not traps… I sometimes get the same… at one point I had to put Voltaren (anti-inflammatory cream) on the side of my head!!!
I find that I get this more when I do lifts from the hang or when I lower the weight down instead of dropping the weight on the floor between reps… it is the action of dropping the weight than suddenly catching it between reps that causes it.
Are you doing the lifts from the hang?
